- Apple has apparently stopped updating Snow Leopard. Is there any way to continue to use it safely, or is the only safe option an update to a newer version of OS X?

- Since I’ve installed iOS7, I occasionally get random reboots, where the screen is just black with a white apple symbol in the middle. Has anyone else experienced this, and is there any solution to it? It doesn't happen that often, but it sure is annoying when it does.

- On all the other versions of iOS I’ve used before, you could just double click the home button, hold down the app’s icon in the app switcher tray and kill it from there. That doesn’t work for me in iOS 7. Anyone know what the new process to force close an app is, assuming you can still do it?

- With iOS 7, when I want to send a set of photos by email, I’m limited to sending 5 at a time. It’s not an issue most of the time, but it is annoying when it is. Is there a way to send more than 5 in a single email?

- I know there is the usual Steve Austine type general improvements - lighter, faster, thinner - but is there anything that really impacts the user experience that has changed? With iOS 7 running just fine on existing iPads which also have the same Retina display, would an owner of an existing iPad even notice a difference with the iPad Air?

- I have an issue with a nearly new MacBook Air where it drops its WiFi connection regularly, but still shows good signal strength. I’ve cycled the router, and don’t think that’s the problem since I’ve had other devices connected at the same time the MacBook lost its connection without there being any disruption for them.

- I experienced a problem updating my iPhone 4 using iTunes. I had the same problem in the past with a 3GS, and was able to correct it by entering DFU mode (which I remember because I thought it meant Don't Mess Up, or something along those lines). What I don't recall is how you do it. Anyone know how to enter DFU mode?

- How hard is it to replace the battery on an iPhone 3GS? The phone is pretty old, but I don't want to spend the money to replace my 3GS and get locked into a new 2 year contract. The battery has gotten to the point where I really have to keep a charger nearby if I want to make it through the day.
